See antique trucks, step onto train cars, take a ride on trolleys! Thousands of truck enthusiasts and rail fans will gather Sunday, May 4 at the Orange Empire Railway Museum in Perris, CA for the annual Antique Truck Show. This one-day special event at Southern California’s railway heritage park will feature hundreds of restored, vintage trucks — from semis to pickups to delivery vehicles and farm equipment – in addition to rolling locomotives and street cars.
The event is co-sponsored by the American Truck Historical Society Southern California Chapter and the Orange Empire Railway Museum, whose missions are to preserve trucking and rail history in Southern California and the West.
The Orange Empire Railway Museum opens from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. with trucks on display until 2:30 p.m. Admission is $7, $5 for ages 5 to 11, to view hundreds of restored trucks. A $12 pass ($8 for ages 5 to 11, will include the truck show and rides on electric trolleys and locomotives. Age 4 and under can enjoy the day for free.
